The environment here was really nice and relaxing. The staff were also very friendly. However, eating options are a bit limited as you either have to eat at the restaurant or make your own food (if you are in one of the self service units). There are no restaurants close by and for me, the food options at the restaurant...

The accommodation is nice and the rooms are spacious. However, there is nothing special to this place and the facilities do not justify the high price compared to other lodges. The restaurant offers medium quality food, but food is only served when ALL the other guests are seated. The staff did not communicatie well.

The staff were very friendly and our stay was very pleasant. Breakfast is great and the rooms are comfortable. The De Old Drift Guest Farm offers great value for money and I would suggest to use them when visiting the Addo Elephant Park.

This is the place to stay in Addo. On arrival we were greeted with the most amazing and friendly welcome. Nothing is too much to ask and the entire team are lovely. The food is exceptional and generous. Every meal we had could of been presented in a Michelin star restaurant, the pea soup was to die for (I even...

We stayed in this lodge for 2 nights, and when we arrived, we were too late for dinner. There were no restaurants nearby, so we decided to make some toast in our own kitchen(!). Then a chef of the resort came by, and suggested that he would make us dinner from all the leftovers he had bought. At the end...

This is our second time at the Old Drift Guest House. We really loved it the first time around, but didn't got the chance to go to the Addo Elephant park. So, we have come back to go now. Also, we really loved our stay the first time, about 5 years ago. It was quite a delight to see that...

This is my second visit to De Old Drift and as before I find the staff friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was clean and for what you pay the food is very good. If you have children the three dogs alone are worth the visit. Would I return, yes I am in January

This was a lovely guest house. We stayed in the self catering cottage which was very well equipped, and had a lovely setting with a great BBQ with stunning views of the nature surrounding the Sundays river just beyond. The pool was great and provided fabulous relief from the heat, and the staff were very friendly and helpful in all...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
COME AND RELAX IN OUR TRANQUIL ENVIRONMENT, WITH ONLY SOUNDS OF NATURE AT YOUR DOORSTEP... De Old Drift Guest Farm, a short distance from the little village of Addo in South Africa’s malaria-free Eastern Cape province and only 15min drive from the renowned Addo Elephant National Park, with its big Seven, and numerous other species. De Old Drift is a working citrus farm, one of the smallest but most peaceful farms in the area. Take a tour through the orchards and venture down to The Sundays river, only a short 2km away, where Njala, Kudu’s and Rooibok can be seen on the ridge of the mountain. Relax around the pool after a long day at the Elephant Park, or take a walk through the garden and orchards, when the trees are in blossom, the smell of citrus permeates the air. Enjoy our refreshing breakfast in our thatched roof lapa overlooking the garden and swimming pool area. Adventure, fun and games await children, where Pumba (Labrador), Timone (Jack Russel) and Mufasa (Bullmastiff) love to make new friends and play... a little paradise for all children. Your hosts Neels, Juanita and Steffi, will make sure that your stay will be one to remember. ... more   less

“The rooms are all different and apparently the rooms nearer reception have slightly better wifi although it is still erratic we were told by other guests. Some rooms are further away, but nice and quiet. The whole farm is very peaceful and we enjoyed it.”
